Celsius is a project co-funded by the European Union to help communities plan, implement and optimize new or older urban heating infrastructure.
The project had set itself the goal of recruiting 50 new cities per year. For the year 2016, the Celsius project has therefore reached its objectives, since it has just announced that 58 European cities were involved.

New CELSIUS Cities believe that intelligent district heating and cooling systems have a role to play in the evolution of the city’s energy systems, and they have committed to actively engage and collaborate with the CELSIUS project in pursuing the cities’ heating and cooling objectives.
